Hogg began his career with home-town juvenile side West Calder before moving to nearby junior side Mossend Swifts. He moved to League side Hearts in 1892 and became a professional the following year, when professionalism was legalised in Scotland. During his time with the Gorgie side he won two League titles, in 1894-95 and 1896-97, and two Scottish Cup winners medals, in 1895-96 and 1900-01.
Although primarily a defensive player, earning the sobriquet "Tynecastle Warhorse" as a testament to his power and stamina, he was also capable of playing a more refined game when required. He played twice for the Scottish national team, both times in 1896. He made his debut in a 2-1 win against England and also played in a 3-3 draw with Ireland. He made one appearance for the Scottish League representative side.
